Note about Size Selection: I recommend selecting the size based on your actual cross-back measurement (measure the width of your back from center of underarm to center of underarm, with both arms down). If this measurement falls between 2 sizes I recommend choosing the larger of the two. Of course, you can also choose a size according to how much ease you’d like the garment to have. For complete garment measurements, please refer to diagram on page 6.

This shrug is constructed in an unusual manner. It is knit from the top down, from the back neck and shoulders to the underarms. The sleeve stitches are then put on hold and the back stitches are worked together with stitches picked up along each front raglan to form the back and fronts of the body in one piece. 
An easy textured band adds visual interest. For sizes XS to L only, short rows are worked in the back. Sleeves are worked in the round, and can be worked as either short or elbow-length sleeves.
